Left Coast Crime – Calamari Crime!

on March 24, 2014

Left Coast Crime is fast becoming one of my favorite conferences, for three primary reasons: 1. Location. It’s on the “left” half of the country and much easier for me to travel to. Two years ago it was in Sacramento! This year … Monterey, a three hour drive. Much easier (and cheaper) than spending a day flying cross-country. 2. Intimacy. LCC is neither large nor small, it’s just right. I have the opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. 3. Readers. LCC is one of the few conferences that still is largely filled with reader —… Read More

I’m off to RomCon, the romance readers convention in Colorado. I’ve never been, but so many of my author friends have told me it’s a fabulous venue to meet readers, so when they invited me as one of the romantic suspense authors, I said sure!

Someone with an incredible imagination came up with this! I hope I can do it justice.

I Love Readers

I don’t want to go into details, but there have been some Readers Behaving Badly — readers so upset about an author’s story choices that they have resorted to threats. I’m flummoxed about this because, while I understand how readers might get mad at a book and never read that author again, that they would threaten an author and say horrific things on-line is beyond me. We’ve heard of stalkers (both physical and on-line) and general threats to all celebrities, and some of them authors, but to me, this situation goes even further, as if the characters and story is… Read More
